By Edgar Soriano, Ministry Intern
This has been a great summer! Our second internship for teens from our own neighborhood has been an amazing experience for each of them. They have done so many things that have helped them grow closer to God. They've gotten the chance to see the other side of ministry and have loved and enjoyed doing it.
The first month of the internship was filled with kids camps, where they played with the kids and helped lead small groups. They've also been focused on discipling other teens from our community by living life and sharing Jesus with them. They organize social activities for the teens like playing soccer, going to a movie, going bowling, and other fun things that help them share life. We are getting close to the end of the internship but the interns are better then ever. We are so proud of them for the great leaders they're becoming. They have learned and grown so much this year, and we and hope to see all of them back next year.
